Windows 7: Explorer 9 tabs below favourites

16 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Pre 64bit
Explorer 9 tabs below favourites

Im not sure why,
but recently for some reason, my tabs in IE9 have decided to move from being on the bottom row, below the favourites....
to suddenly move to the top, just below the address bar.

Ive tried looking in the tabs menu, but nothing i csn change in their.
at first i thought it may have been my imagintaion, but a friends windows 7 IE9 is at the bottom, just under the favourites row.

Hope someone can help, im sure its something simple im looking beyond,
Many thanks

Lol it took me a while to figuere this out but the difference is in the version number your using. One has IE8 the other has internet explorer 9. Consider more secure and was aiming to be more modern.

I think one of the biggest factor was to put the tabs in the same row as the address bar. Look at my picture number 2.
After all, your tabs are your webpages, and it would be logical to put them in same row. Also it would allow for more screen display area for websites. Sadly you can not do what your asking. Only way would be to revert back to the older version, i can guide you trough it if you would like. However I strongly insist to not do it.
